All- it has been quite some time since I’ve posted. I have had a very busy life in the past few years. I’ve changed jobs, went back to grad school & graduated, went back for post graduate work, we added another family member, we lost my Dad, etc etc.
As I near the end of my post-graduate studies in about 8 weeks, I’m hoping to spend the summer purging our home. We are in serious need of emptying out, cleaning, purging, donating etc.
I read Marie Kondo’s book and love concepts of tidying that she uses. My biggest obstacle right now is WHAT TO DO with all the stuff? Obviously a lot of it can be donated to our local Salvation Army store or to the St. Vincent de Paul shop. However, with some debt to still pay off and much of our stuff being literally brand new-tags still attached- what should I do with the better stuff? Our locale isn’t garage sale-friendly. I looked online at sites like ThredUp but they take fairly high end stuff and my style is MUCH more conservative than those brands. I thought of maybe our local crisis shelter???
Any ideas or suggestions? I just want to know that this new stuff will be put to good use and NOT picked up by someone in a thrift store then sold online by them for profit…
